A-Copper hued with a small white head that hung on and left decent lace.

S-Citrus hop blast upfront followed by a bit of earthiness and a good dose of sweet caramel malt.

T-A near classic West Coast IPA IMHO. Crisp citrus snap in the forefront with pleasant support from the caramel malt in the back. The hops are the star of this brew.

M-Medium body with a very nice crispnes and good smoothness.

D-Bring it on....this is the type of hoppy beer I expect to have when sitting in a PP. Nice stuff...another pint please!

On tap at Carlsbad.

The beer poured a nice copper hue with a small white lace of a head.

The aroma of the beer had citrusy and earthy hops. Some English crystal malt peeked through as well.

The flavor of the beer was assertively bitter with some nice caramel malts in the background. The hops were citrusy and earthy, but seemed slightly muddied - I tasted what I though was some Centennial, but the other varieties didn't make themselves so obvious.

The mouthfeel and carbonation were good and this beer was very drinkable.

Overall, another solid beer from the hopheads at Pizza Port.
